I personally think 1974 was THE year for Scarlet Begonias.

I'm not going to say it's better than the Selland performance but the Scarlet Begonias they played in Dijon is mighty good...

agreed Cliff. I like the song fast.One thing I find funny is 5-19-74 is the poster child for bashing both for Donna and the song. Now while it's true for her the version itself minus her is probably my favorite. Tight as hell.

I like the 5/19/74 Scarlet Begonias as well, JOTS. Not to mention the superb Truckin' Jam in that Portland show.

There are plenty of terrific stand alone performances of Scarlet Begonias during 1974. Another terrific rendition (which sadly didn't make it on to Road Trips II/3) is on 6/16/74.

Now I'm not a big fan of the '74 Europe tour, but I think they jammed out the Scarlet Begonias show opener in London on 9/11/74 rather nicely...

My favorite as well.

EDIT: I should say, my favorite stand-alone Scarlet. I'm not sure it beats 12/16/78.

i definitely enjoy that one too, though i think i might prefer the really jammed out version from 9/11:
